About Me

Hi, it’s great to meet you! My name is John David Wilson III, but you can call me Jack.

 I’m a sophomore at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill majoring in Global Studies and Media & Journalism (on the Ad/PR route!) with a potential minor in Music. My other academic interests include Political Science, Gender/Sexuality Studies, and Spanish.

Some fun facts about me:

  • I was born in Annapolis, Maryland, but have lived in Cary, North Carolina my entire life.
  • My favorite foods include avocados, salmon, and penne alla vodka.
  • When I’m not studying, you can find me at rehearsal with my a cappella group or pulling espresso shots at the Meantime Coffee Co. in the Campus Y!

Ever since my sister convinced me to audition for my middle school’s production of “Legally Blonde,” I haven’t stopped singing. I met some of my best friends through my high school theatre program, as I participated in plays and musicals with them after school. Eventually, I got involved in my schools choir and a cappella club as well. I loved it so much that I decided to audition for a cappella groups in college as well!

From humming alone in my room to listening to music with my friends, music has become a vital outlet for me to express myself and connect with others. Regardless of talent, everyone has some connection to music, which makes it such an influential way to communicate with different people. Music can be used to heal, to celebrate, to mourn – every single emotion or feeling can be channeled powerfully into music.

I joined the Tarpeggios Spring semester of my first year at UNC, and it completely changed the course of my college experience. I never could have imagined meeting a group filled with such compassionate, talented, and comedic individuals. Working with such skilled vocalists has really pushed me to explore the depth of my relationship with music and improve on many of my weaknesses as a singer.
